Fun Heats

Have a child who needs special accommodations during the race?

We have Fun Heats for the 1 mile Express and the 1/2 mile George Dashington. Those Heats are reserved for kids who perhaps don’t like the larger crowds or need assistance while running. We also support wheeled athletes from organizations like Ainsley’s Angels during these Heats. Participants in Fun Heats are not eligible for awards.
